  1. So, I really want to go to Yale. It's been my dream for a long time. I'm also applying for Harvard and Princeton, because those are the only Ivy Leagues that offer good financial aid to international students (I'm from Canada). If I get in, I plan on majoring in history or political science. The thing is, I'm in Math Studies SL. I don't plan on doing sciences or math or anything like that, I only want to do humanities. Do I have a good shot at getting into Yale, Princeton, or Harvard's history or political science programs with a 7 in Math Studies, given that my other grades, extra curriculars, and standardized test scores are perfect? Is it required of me to take Math SL to get into a humanities program? Thanks!
  2. Hello everyone! I just started PreIB and I realised that I dont really know what I want to be in the future. I know it's something in the social science area, but not really sure what. I've been interested in law since I was a kid, but ive never really seen myself studying law. A lot of people that start studying law say that they dont like it anymore and drop out, and im scared that that will happen to me too, so ive never considered it for real. But now Ive started looking at some universities, and im interested in studying law. Currently, I have chosen these 6 subjects: 1. Swe A langlit SL 2. Eng B HL 3. Economics HL 4. Environmental systems and societies SL 5. Math SL 6. Business & Management HL - Could I still study law with these subjects? - What are some important requirements that law schools have, that I already need to start thinking about now? - What are some good universities (except for harvard etc.) - What other careers do you suggest (with these subjects)? - What do you need to be good at to study this? - Your experience with studying law/ law schools? Im thankful for all answers and advice! Thanks in advance! (and sorry for tl;dr )
  3. Hello everyone, I have just received IB results, and am wondering whether it is worth applying to Harvard. I do not know the application process terribly well, and would therefore also appreciate if anyone could give me some guidance upon what is involved in it (i.e. interview, SATs, IB results if considered...). I obtained 43 + 7 in my extra subject, for a total of 50/52. I was 1% off a 7 in Maths SL and will request a remark, so I could possibly find myself only loosing one mark overall. Hence, I would strongly appreciate anyone's advice upon applying to Harvard or ANY OTHER IVY LEAGUE university given my situation, and whether I have a realistic chance of getting in. I also am bilingual in French and English and am taking a gap year. How do IVY league schools perceive gap years? Thanks
  4. Hi, I have two questions regarding the department of Economics at Harvard College. 1. I will go to the army in Finland after I graduate from the IB to get a 12 months leadership education and after that apply to Harvard College Economics. Let´s say I don't get in and want to re-apply the following year, will that then lower my chances since I have not attended school for 24 months, I will of course work, do voluntary work, go back-packing, study basics in business and management and go back-packing in South East Asia so I won't just sleep and eat all day long at home. 2. I'm not sure if I want to settle down in the United States after attending Harvard, or return to Finland. If asked this question by an interviewer, would Harvard prefer students that stay in the United States, or those who just come to go to school and the gets the f*ck off back to their home country? Any ideas on this? Do you think it will make any difference to them what I answer? Thanks!
  5. I use Harvard style referencing in my History Extended Essay and I am unaware on how to cite official government documents/primary sources. Examples of these documents are provided in the links below. I would be really grateful if someone who has knowledge on citing such documents would show me how to do it. http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/brwh1939.asp http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/brwh1922.asp https://history.state.gov/milestones/1945-1952/creation-israel Thanks.
  6. Hii! I know this is a super general question but I'm in the middle of looking at different uni's. I'm interested in English, but I have nooo idea how to choose the right one since they all offer it. I'm in my first year of the IB program so I still have some time but I really would like to get the best idea of where I can go and then get into said university, so I want to be prepared!! My dream would be Harvard or Oxbridge... Thankyouu!
  7. I recently recieved two letters from Harvard titled 'The Truth About Engineering and Science at Harvard' and 'How Much Will Harvard Cost You?'. Could it be because I started to fill my Common App application for Harvard?
  8. Hey, I am a 16 year old (turning 17). I skipped 9th and 10th grade. I've just graduated and got 40/45 on the IB. I'm taking a gap year now and will be taking SATs (so far I have an 800 on Math 2) and applying throughout the gap year. As a result, I will be applying to US universities with my IB score in hand, as opposed to with a predicted score. I want to get in to universities such as Harvard or MIT. How do universities value actual IB scores in comparison with predicted scores? Also, how much, if at all, will the fact that I did the IB at a younger age contribute to my applications? Do you think I have a good chance getting into such universities?
  9. Hey! What would the answer to this be? I have a junior asking me about this and I'm not sure what to tell him. Arrowhead.

  11. Hello everyone! I have a question about admission to Yale/Harvard/other Ivy League uni. Do these universities require that a student would have all 7 in his/her HL predicts? I understand that there are more chances that a person will be admiited to these colleges with all 7 in his predicts but can I apply if I have less than 7 in my HL predicts?
  12. Hi, I'm a rising senior and a prospective applicant. A lot of the more prestigious schools seem to value research papers and lab reports written during internships, etc and I was wondering if anyone knew/had opinions on an EE being valid material to send in? As most IBers would know, a lot of supervisors and teachers consider the EE as a piece of pretty legit research writing (...for high schoolers), it's 4000 words of concentrated analysis. Would it be considered appropriate? If it helps, I'm writing mine in English Literature. I'm not going to apply as a lit major though, most likely something related to sustainability and environmentalism (something like EnvEng or environmental studies and economics). The EE is something IBers pore over the holidays and what not, so it would be great news for me if I could show something I'm genuinely proud of to someone other than the examination board. Any opinions would be immensely helpful -- especially so if anyone knows about sending in the EE elsewhere e.g. other Ivies, top LACs. Thanks in advance!
